Can someone please answer a question for me ? What does it exactly mean ? and who does the money actually go to during the time in question? I am going to quote and order. " Effective July 25th Defendants child support obligation to Plaintiff on behalf of child is granted. Defendants request that the child be emancipated is denied. As the parties agree the child is no longer residing with Plaintiff, but with Grandmother Defendants request to terminate support obligation to Plaintiff on behalf of child is granted. Effective Sept 30th parties agree to each pay a sum $ directly to the child. So since child is emancipated from Def July but we agree to pay the child directly as of Sept 30. Is my child owed any $ from July to Sept from either of us? or is the child emancip for those weeks?
Your child is not emancipated. It sounds as if effective July 25 Defendant's child support obligation previously payable to Plaintiff while the child resided with plaintiff no longer is paid to Plaintiff, although one would have to see what relief Defendant asked for to be sure. It does not sound like anyone has to pay anything between July 25 and Sept 30 if that is the case. This kind of gap happens sometimes when what was asked for or ordered is combined with agreements made by the parties. You can obtain a CD recording of what happened in Court for $10 from the Court and listen to what the court said on the record. If it is significantly different than what is written you can write to the Court and ask the Court to clarify the differences, or file a motion to request changes be made.
I would want to see the entire Order and know a little more about the history before giving a guess as to the true intention here, although the previous response seems logical.
I agree with the posters above. I think the one thing we can say with certainty is that the child is not emancipated and that you and the other child's parent will have to continue to pay the agreed upon amount to the child. Without seeing the entire order, it will be difficult to give more advice.
This answer does not constitute the establishment of an attorney/client relationship nor is there any guarantee that this advice will be completely effective in a court of law. A consultation, including review of court orders and other documents is necessary in order for me to give you proper advice and guidance.
